Abstract

The impact of railway station redevelopment in the urban cores of China's cities is an important and worthy research question in the present context because of a China-wide program of station replacement and system upgrading. Following European and Japanese precedents, Chinese railway station redevelopment will provide a catalyst for revitalizing the station area and extending the impact of the station into the surrounding area. Until now, station redevelopment has largely concerned the railway facilities themselves, along with intermodal facilities. This investigation explores the current extent of the Wuchang railway station on the surrounding area, and projects its future extent based on an analysis of the completed transport hub. Wuchang railway station was chosen as my case study because it is a super-large station and located in the city center. Thus, Wuchang station redevelopment was more likely to have a local revitalization impact in the city than the other local railway stations. Also, Wuchang railway station is one of six main hubs of the high-speed railway network. The study found that the effect of Wuchang railway station redevelopment is larger than what has been planned, the connection between Wuchang station's two sites is not really addressed, and an integrated city-based public transportation system has not yet been fully established. Based on the findings, recommendations are offered for policymakers and administrators.
